If you have a property, a flat, house or any shared space in Sydney you will already know how valuable space is in our beautiful city. The demand for letting on a short-term basis has significantly increased from both people visiting Sydney for tourism/leisure and also for work or to visits friends. This is projected to continue growing as Sydney remains a major attraction and place to visit.
The challenge for hosts is how to go about making the property available for short term let. The basic steps are getting the property listed on a suitable website, getting it ready for guests and managing it.
1. Where do I list my property for short-term letting – Airbnb is the leading site in the market, has invested considerable resources to make it simple to use for both hosts and guests. There are many other websites also available, such as TripAdvisor and HomeAway.
2. Getting the place ready will mean creating a listing and preparing the space to receive guests. Most of this is common sense such as creating suitable spaces for guests and ensuring that there are adequate amenities to support their stay.
3. Managing it is probably the most challenging part since it involves meeting and greeting guests, on-going guest communication, calendar management and cleaning/linen management, all the aspects involved in providing the actual physical service.
Whether you do all or part of above very much depends on your personal circumstances. Doing it yourself is very time consuming and requires being available at all times to communicate with guests and ensure the place is well managed.
Thankfully there are now many service providers who can help with taking away the burden of actually managing the place leaving you to get on with your other activities or enjoy your time away.
